High-end audio supplier Audio Design Associates (ADA) will go to this week's Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Line Show to launch the $799-suggested Ramp-PM Room Amp, which connects to stereo speakers and passive soundbars to improve the sound quality of flat-panel TVs.
The 2x30-watt amp is 8 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches in size to fit behind TVs.
The Ramp-PM features analog audio inputs, but because many TVs no longer offer analog audio outputs, the Ramp-PM adds digital inputs and decoding of Dolby Digital, DTS and PCM soundtracks, the company said.
